What do you normally feed? Why only have one chick? Have a large enough enclosure so the heat lamp can stay on BUT make sure the chick can get completely away from the heat by moving to the other side of the cage. If the cage is too small and they can't escape the heat it could be fatal.
Scramble up an egg (don't use a non-stick frying pan) and see if the chick will eat some.

Coccidiosis can be common at this age, although it is more common with chicks on the ground. Diarrhea or blood in droppings, lethargy, not eating, and hunched or puffed up posture are common symptoms. Cocci is treated with Corid (amprollium) in the water. Until then I would give it electrolytes (SaveAChick) with a dropper or encourage it to drink. A bit of plain yogurt or buttermilk would also be good.
